    Disable Easystroke command

    Does anybody know if Easystroke could be disabled/enabled from command line. A status toggle or 'Start disabled' option will also do.

    Thanks in advance.

    In your easystroke preferences you can choose to display a tray icon
    which gives you a right click disable option.

    That is what I am doing at present. What I want is an option to start it disbled, so that I will not have to disable after every login and just enable from the tray icon. Other wise I will have to remove it from startup and invoke it manually whenever required.

    The reason is, I am using Button1 for easystrokes.

    I'm not sure you can do this in an easy way, without digging into the source of easystroke. The man page for easystroke gives no option for starting it disabled from the command line.

    What you can do is set up a gesture for disabling easystroke. Just pick Type>Misc, and choose Disable (Enable) from the menu. This is quicker than clicking the icon. Of course, once disabled, you cant use the gesture to re-enable it.

    Maybe someone else has a better solution.

    Re: Disable Easystroke command

    there is a solution. You can trigger easystroke actions via the bash.

    So add an action that ist called toggle_active that disables or enables easystroke.

    In bash:

    easystroke send toggle_active

    Done

    A script file with the following content did not work

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    easystroke send toggle_active
    Can you please provide the correct method for doing this?

    TIA.
